I will always go to Ulmer’s because of the quick service, accommodation, and transparency. These guys have always given their all and beyond the extra mile multiple times. I recently had an insurance incident and they worked with the insurance company to get my vehicle back in service quickly and without money from my pocket (personal experience and may not be the result for every situation). Thanks Ulmer’s!

Went in for a scheduled oil change and received feedback that my tires needed attention/replacement soon. Very quickly ordered the proper tires and had them installed within days. Very professional, very friendly. Similar experience with the Ulmer’s shop in Milford. Lucky to have them right down the street.

I had a wonderful experience with Ulmer’s auto care. They quickly diagnosed the issue, even after the computer scanner on my car was malfunctioning. They replaced the hybrid battery on my car within 3 days of figuring out the issue, and also did a thorough review of maintenance due for my car, without being pushy about needing to do more. Overall I was extremely satisfied with my experience and will be taking my car here for maintenance and repairs in the future.

I made an appointment for an oil change and upon inspection they found some problems. Of course that is never happy news.....but they fixed the problems, and after having bad weather and ice, they even were so accommodating and brought my car to me. Now that is excellent service. I do appreciate all your service. Thanks!

Best auto service I have used EVER! They have an online service for reviewing and approving/declining service requests based on your cars needs and for paying your invoice. No surprise pricing as you see exactly how much every individual repair job will cost as you approve and decline the jobs. All the services I had done were reasonably priced. Customer service is phenomenal and the shuttle service makes getting repairs done way less of a hassle. 10/10 would recommend.

Ulmers did a great job repairing the brakes on my old Toyota Matrix. Literally to-the-door service with their pick up/drop off service included. They always communicate with me clearly about the estimate and repair (not talking over my head or down to me, and giving a clear understandable explanation) and warn me even if the estimate was a few dollars off. Over decades of taking my family’s cars to Ulmers, we have always been delighted with their work- a never-fail repair every time.

Had an issue with another place for oil change, they said that something was cracked and they would not be able to perform the service. Ulmer's looked it over and confirmed that they couldn't find anything wrong with it and recommended just to go ahead with the oil change. I would consider going here for oil changes if it didn't take so long. If I have anything greater than an oil change though, I will definitely be using them again.

We have used Ulmer's Auto for many years (30+) -- back to when they only had one shop on Salem Rd. They are honest, efficient, effective, knowledgeable and friendly. Brian does take after his father which is very positive and therefore is a very good manager. His staff is first class and they have super memories, of course, their computer systems helps them.

Ulmer's Auto Care is a professional automotive service shop that provides quality repairs and good value, compare to dealers. They are punctual and can be trusted to have ready your car when promised. They are not the least expensive however one can trusted them to deliver good and satisfactory work.

We've taken a number of cars in the family there and they're always reliable they always do great work at a fair and competitive price. From minor repairs and things like 30,000 mile checkups to having an entire AC replaced on a 20-year-old car, we've had it done there. Now that I've found them, I wouldn't go anywhere else. They let you know up front how long it's going to take and how much it's going to cost and they're right on target there are no gimmicks there are no unexpected extras. The only drawback, if it is one, is that they are becoming quite well known and very popular so if you need something done you need to plan a little bit in advance because they're not the world's biggest place, but it's worth the wait so plan ahead and go there for what has to be absolutely the best car care in Cincinnati and Ohio and the Midwest that I have found.

A great place that is unfortunately unique as it combines competent auto service with genuine customer service. Was told by a neighbor that Ulmer's was trustworthy and did good work, and was happy to learn that their pricing was lower than the dealership with m-u-c-h better service. (Ulmer's is one of those places where you actually experience being treated like a customer.) Impressive.

I was experiencing shaking in my car at higher speeds and called Ulmer's to check on service availability. I talked to Brandon, and he suggested I stop by to check it out. He examined my tires and drove with me to better understand the problem. Since it could be a while before I could be seen at their location, he helpfully suggested I try a tire store for a tire rebalance that would likely solve my issue. I appreciated his willingness to help me solve my problem quickly. Next summer, when it's time for new tires, I'll definitely return to Ulmer's.

I took my car to Ulmer’s because of a flashing engine light and failing turn signal. I had a lot of questions and Brandon was incredibly helpful in explaining everything to me. I don’t think I’ve ever had a service rep. at any auto place take that much time and care to explain exactly why my engine light was on and why. It was confusing at first, but Brandon was patient and made sure I understood the problem with my car and how we could maintain it going into the future. Thank you SO MUCH Brandon for your kindness, patience, and overall quality customer service. I will absolutely be back in the future for my auto care needs!

Ulmer’s is the best! When my battery was dead, they loaned me a charger. When the charger didn’t work, Steve showed up at my house and jumped the car. They always take such good care of us and our cars. I’ve been using Ulmer’s for over 20 years. I wouldn’t even consider going anywhere else.

Professional no nonsense to the point and informative. No "up selling" of unnecessary service. Shuttle service was given but no loaners we're available. (That's because they're super busy, and that's because they employ top shelf technicians) Work done timely and received vehicle without greasy hand prints... professional

My son (college student) was having issues with his Silverado, turns out it needed a new axel. Brandon and the team at Ulmers, knew this would be covered under warranty and did a great job of communicating with us. They helped arrange a tow to the dealership and overall they were super professional. Will look to use them for future auto care needs.

I went to Ulmer's for an inspection/to identify the cause for some problems my car was having. In a show of commendable honesty, they identified two potential issues and, instead of choosing one arbitrarily or having me spend the money to address both, they told me that the issue was not yet serious enough to require repairs and to keep driving the car while looking for any further deterioration. In so doing, they seemed, to me, to earnestly want to address my problems without over charging me. If there's one thing I appreciated most, it was this honesty. I was also given quite thorough information during our conversations over the phone.I do have a couple of complaints, but none severe enough to lower my rating. The first is just that parking at the Salem location was very limited, despite me coming in quite early in the day. The second is and third relate to time. The inspection took a while, over a week, and I had to call a few times to ask for updates. This, I am told, was a phone issue on their end. They had actually called me a few times by the time of my final call, and they could not reach my phone for whatever reason.Overall, I would happily recommend this place. I would just recommend calling in for updates if necessary.
